This panel takes W.S.

there is no singular ‘nature’ as such, only a diversity of contested natures; and that eachsuch nature is constituted through a variety of socio-cultural processes from which such natures cannot be plausibly separated.

Surface and ornament are periodically reviewed, discarded and pursued. More recently, there has been an interest in the writing of Aby Warburg, Alois Riegl, Gottfried Semper, Adolf Loos, Hermann Muthesius, and Le Corbusier. They have been made prominent by issues of animation (see, for example, Papapetros 2012, Payne 2013, van Eck 2014) and digitation (see for example Spuybroek 2008 and Schumacher 2009).

Scientific and technological advances in genetics, artificial intelligence, and human enhancements forge new perspectives and challenges of the human being.

Literature has been one of the effective mediums to articulate and rethink visions of human evolution and critically examine the existential crisis of the human through post- and transhumanist thought.

Warren Wagar 40-42). The focus of this roundtable is to discuss the techniques H.G.
